About cumulative-incremental backups
Policies that are
configured to perform a cumulative-incremental backup only backup
the files that changed since the last full backup.
On Microsoft Windows
systems, you can configure cumulative-incremental backups to use
either the datetime stamp or the archive bit.
For datetime stamp use,
cumulative-incremental backups include all files with a datetime
stamp that is more recent than the last full backup.
For archive bit use,
cumulative-incremental backups include all files that have their
archive bit set. Archive bits are not cleared on cumulative
See General tab.
Only the NetBackup master
server can perform incremental backups.
